In 1939 and 1940, Leonarda Cianciulli of Correggio, Italy became widely known throughout the town for her homemade soaps and teacakes. But none of this sweet, middle-aged woman’s houseguests knew her secret ingredient: the remains of the women she’d murdered.
At least three times in those two years, Cianciulli would invite a woman over to her house, drug her wine, then butcher her with an axe before chopping her into little pieces to use for soaps and cakes. When she was finally caught, she told authorities all about her disturbing process:
“She ended up in the pot like the other two… her flesh was fat and white, when it had melted I added a bottle of cologne, and after a long time on the boil, I was able to make some most acceptable creamy soap.”
